Abolition or Reform: Dismantling Criminal Justice

6:30-9:00pm Thursday 19 November 2015

Central London, venue to be confirmed 

If prisons and police are an inadequate solution to social problems, to what extent can the system be reformed or should it be abolished altogether?  
Speakers include:
Stephen Akpabio-Klementowski (PhD Student, The Open University)
Bree Carlton (Monash University, Australia)
Deborah Coles (Inquest)
Empty Cages Collective
London Campaign Against Police and State Violence
Erica R Meiners (Northeastern University Illinois, USA
Neena Samota (StopWatch)
Bent Bars members may be particularly interested in hearing Bree Carleton and Erica Meiners speak as both have done extensive work on issues of gender and sexuality in prisons in Australia and the USA respectively.  Both are visiting from abroad so this is a great opportunity to hear them speak along with the line-up of other fantastic speakers.
